Tombstone, Arizona

Aloha Everyone,

Tombstone is one of the many visitor attractions in the Sierra Vista Arizona area. This Old West settlement is well preserved that J.J. and I actually could imagine we stepped back in time.

We strolled down the notorious Allen Street with shops displaying familiar scenes from the Old West such as Big Nose Kate's, the Bird Cage Theater and the OK Corral.

Hired actors dressed like Wyatt Earp, Johnny Ringo, Doc Holliday and Clanyon posed for photos. J.J. and I also saw a number of visitors dressed in their newly purchased Western gears complete with a ten gallon hat and leather jacket with fringes walking around.

Sarsaparilla is the origin of root beer. The maker with bright red cheeks told us with a mischievous look to "be sure to keep the bottle as it is a collector's item." We paid $2.50 for an 8 ounce bottle and took a photo as our souvenir.

We are staying at the Tombstone Territories RV Park. This location is isolated - about 11 miles of country road from the town of Tombstone and signal for AT&T is sporadic.  Their free WiFi is unreliable but the staff and the guests we met thus far are wonderful.

I have to be ready to capture amazing sunrise and sunset which one of the long-time guests promised are daily events.

Aloha -- Cathi
